Due to the strange and wonderful new VAT regulations plaguing the UK digital music world, I have now made this purely a free download, grab it, enjoy it.

Originally the album was released to raise funds for Cancer Research, so, if you feel inclined to do so, download it for free and make a direct donation to Cancer research UK, or the charity of your choice. Just drop me a line and let me know what you decide.

All the CDs are now sold, so I'm afraid it's downloads only.


An album of solo bass pieces featuring loops, noodles, weird backward stuff, improv and too many effects. Recorded over the space of a year and a bit. Interspersed with the loop based stuff are one or two arrangements of pieces written by other people. Enjoy!

Most of us in today’s world will have been affected in one way or another by cancer. You may have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, or know someone who is suffering from cancer right now, or has previously undergone treatment.

I lost my granddad and my father to cancer a few years ago and more recently we lost our dear friend Lucy, to whom track 2 is dedicated.
